DVD of the Inaugural Concert

For his first concert as principal conductor of the Staatskapelle Dresden, Christian Thielemann had chosen a rarely encountered yet natural combination: Alongside Anton Bruckner’s majestic Seventh Symphony he conducted a selection of lieder for soprano by Hugo Wolf. Renée Fleming has been certainly the ideal interpreter for this repertoire, which of course included the famous song »Er ist’s« to a text by the German poet Mörike.
